First, we are going to need a lot of flat land! This house is built on creative, but can be achieved through hard work on Survival!
Map out your basic first floor. I've used smooth sandstone and spruce wood.
Now build up the walls, a height of at least three blocks high should do! You can always make your own bigger!
Roughly in the middle, make a room for a double door. I've made a lovely path up to the entranceway! We will create the garden in a later guide, so don't worry about that yet!
Now, what flooring should we have?
Beech wood planks are by far my favourite choice in flooring! But, now we need wallpaper!
Brick walls can be a bit drab, let's make it fancy! Plan out a couple of rooms. I've gone for a downstairs bathroom, living room, cellar entrance and left a space for some stairs to be built! Phew!
A simple bathroom for guests! No need for a bath here, just the basics! The monochrome look is made with white, light grey and dark grey wool, with a block of coal for the black.
Place the door between the two separate walls, to seem more realistic.
Your basic toilet! If you can't get your head around making this, I know someone who has made a lovely guide on how to build one!
A corner sink, to avoid taking up too much room! Some fancy carpet tiles also brighten the place up!
Not too shabby for my guests!
Now for some light! Add a quick window, and some glow stone in the ceiling to keep it warm and bright. Oh, and paintings too!
All finished! One room down, plenty to go!
Now to the living room. I've used chiselled quartz and birch wood but you can pick any colour you like!
No living room is complete without a fireplace and mine is traditionally made in brick.
If you place netherrack in a hole inside the fireplace, and use flint and steel on it, it will ignite and stay lit forever! Perfect!
Safety first! Put up a few iron bars to stop the jumping embers burning your nice wooden floor!
A couple of bookcases never fails to make a place feel like home!
Where to sit? How about a snazzy couch? Made with black wool, stone slabs and red wool.
Is this HD ready? Obsidian makes for a good television screen. Nether brick stairs hold up the TV and the plant is just for decoration!
Put a few paintings in place, squint your eyes and you'll believe you're watching the TV!
Here, I've added a little cupboard to store things. Again, if you aren't sure on how to place the doors, just ask or check out my guide on building a kitchen!
A quick coffee table to add some sophistication!
You can create your own design for a cute carpet, go wild and see what you can make!
Now this is nice! A little window seat! The blue wool acts as curtains to bring more colour to the room.
Add some glow stone and a ceiling, and it's finished! Plenty more to go though!
That concludes our first part, but stay tuned for the next part in How to Build a Mansion! Until then, stay lovely! ^_^
